- Would someone agree or disagree with me given my points? (Argue with yourself as to find the strengths and weaknesses of your stance.)
- Am I making a moral or cultural argument? (If so, you may need to reconsider a stance able to utilize scholarly literature.)
- Can I research my stance? (If not, you may need to consider a new stance.)
- Research as to find the evidence needed to support your stance or theory. Seek the needed facts, quotes, and existing research you can use for your argument
